Using the Website

This user guide is for the older release of the site. Most of the documentation for the current 2017 release can be found in the Auctria User Guide v3

Many of the pages on the website use the same elements, so once you are comfortable with them you should be able to quickly navigate onto how other pages work.

Using Tabs

Many of the pages show multiple tabs of information across the top.  The current tab is highlighted in red.

To switch to a different tab click on the greyed out title of the one you want to preview.

Each tab contains additional functions and editing features, for things such as bidder, items, event details, permissions, etc.



Using the Menus

Clicking on a menu button will take you to the corresponding section.

The Home icon will take you to the Summary page for the current auction.

The Summary tab presents a table showing information about your auction.  Some rows will be hidden if they are not applicable.  You can drill into the details of a row by clicking on it.

Item Menu

The second entry in the list contains options for working with Items.  The following chapter explains how to work with Items.
